For those of you asking, I dropped off my first shipment of books today at the Book Revue in Huntington, NY! I’m officially in my first bookstore, along with having it as an e-book on Amazon! More progress…what a great feeling!
Someone asked me the other day…if I could have one thing in relation to my writing, what would it be? My answer: Spend one week with Stephen King and having him take me through the details in his book, On Writing – A Memoir of the Craft…and applying those learnings to my book.
I can only hope that my writing can be as engaging as his one day.
This was a beautiful day. I continue to receive such wonderful support and awesome feedback on this book. It inspires me to continue writing. And it certainly has become a business…I’ve acquired an official publishing company, JGS Publishing, and am beginning the process of heavy marketing, which is leading to incredible sales and word of mouth. Have sold over a 100 books so far, just posted it to Amazon as an e-book and am now connecting with local independent book stores. The libraries are next. Bigger goals are to add print on demand option to Amazon and add audible, and then putting the book in multiple languages. A softcover of the book will also be available soon on http://www.mirabooksmart.com.
Happy 4th and cheers to all authors out there figuring out the process!
